Nicholas Telemaque, the 27-year-old cousin of rapper Nicki Minaj, murdered over the holiday weekend after leaving a Brooklyn club.
Instead of celebrating the Fourth of July holiday rapper Nicki Minaj was left to mourn the death of her older cousin Nicholas Telemaque who was murdered after leaving a Brooklyn nightclub around 2 a.m. on Monday, July 4.
Minaj shared the tragic news with fans through two messages posted on her Twitter page. In both messages she attached a different picture of Telemaque.
“Lived in Brooklyn his whole life. My precious cousin. My baby. Killed last nite…My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse, or @brolicalcoholic* Murdered. Last nite. Near his home,” said Nicki Minaj in a Tweet posted yesterday.
